From the book entitled "My Soul is not for Sale!"


It takes one thought to change the world
One right to change a wrong
One leader to make others follow

It takes one baby to be a father
One stone to make waves in the water
One mistake that could change your life

It takes one pad and pencil to create a masterpiece
One sperm to fertilize an egg
One seed to start a garden

It takes one dream to inspire the masses
One apple to spoil the bunch
One step to start a journey

It takes one woman to fall in love
One kiss to set you free
One step to destiny

It takes one missile to start a war
One baby step to start walking
One breath away from life or death

It takes one punch to start a fight
One drink to make you drunk
One smile to make someone’s day

It takes one kill to make you a criminal
One life to live
One penny away from a dollar

It takes one bullet to take a life
One word to start a sentence
One before you can even have two

It takes one mistake to learn your lesson
One teacher to change your life
One truth to set you free

It takes one person to capture your heart
One time for first impressions
One God to love us all
And that is the power of One!

hi Vaughn,
I just chose your name randomly from the list since your last name was close to my first name Ankin and I am impressed. I love this poem, everything you said is true and I never thought that way. The power of One is so great that it touched my hert profoundly.

Stay well and good luck,

Hmm...considering the power of one...consider if two were to join forces??

Encouraging and uplifting. Nice work.

Reviewed by Aberjhani 9/18/2005
A deeply moving meditation on a somewhat simple and yet very profound truth: all things, whether the best or the worst, have their beginnings in the thoughts and actions of the singular, thus endowing those thoughts and actions with much greater power than we generally recognize. A very thought-provoking poem.
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 9/13/2005
Therefore, the number 1 is so important in our lives. Good job and thought-provoking!
